MIDWEEK PAMPER ROUTINE


Following my daily skincare routine post (read here) I thought I'd talk about my pamper routine which a lot of you ask me about on my Snapchat (skinfacebeauty). I don't always get to pamper my skin but I do try to at least once a week where I try out new products as well as some old favourites. I posted a short clip on Instagram (view here) during my midweek pamper this week. I've stopped wearing foundation everyday but I did wear it quite a bit last weekend and beginning of the week for some events so my skin needed a little TLC after all that cake. 

Garnier Oil-Infused Micellar Cleansing Water (purchase here)
I start off with cleansing my face using this AMAZING micellar water on a couple cotton pads. I cleanse my face even if I have no makeup on to remove any excess makeup/oils before applying my mask. This micellar water is super gentle, it does not irritate it eyes and does its job so well. I prefer this than the original (pink top) one as it leaves the skin super soft and is great for sensitive skin.

Queen Helene Mint Julep Face Mask (reviewed here)
A new favourite mask! It leaves the skin feeling super smooth and squeaky clean. It soaks up the excess oils along my t-zone and around my nose. It's super creamy so allows an easy application and is also easy to take off. Click the link above for a full review and a direct link to where you can purchase it from for super cheap.

Liz Earle Pure Muslin Cloths (purchase here)
I swear by these muslin cloths! I have so many of them and use them every day when I cleanse my face morning and evening. They are so handy and I also use them to take off my face masks. I received most of mine free with my cleanse and polish sets or you can purchase them from the direct link mentioned above.

Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner (purchase here)
Since receiving this in the Mario Badescu PR package, I haven't really used any other toner. This toner does such a great job of tightening and cleaning the pores really well as well as taking off any excess product from the mask that was left behind. It doesn't break me out and the glycolic helps reduce any scarring and hyperpigmention on the skin.

La Roche-Posay Serozinc Spray (purchase here)
I haven't tried many products from this brand but they are always recommended for those with sensitive, breakout/acne prone skin. It does not treat acne but it helps the way acne looks on your skin, for example, it mattifies the skin in the right places and prevents any further breakouts. It feels super refreshing!

Al Din Sumptuous Touch Daily Moisturiser For Women (purchase here)
The lovely Suraiya (owner of Al Din) kindly sent me this AMAZING moisturiser to try out a few weeks ago. The moisturiser is formulated with Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil, Sunflower Oil and Coconut Oil which are all beneficial ingredients that our skin loves. All the products from the entire range are consisted of natural products and are Halal. My mum and me have been using it every day since it arrived. It's so lightweight, hydrating and makes the skin feel so smooth. It sits very well under the foundation and I love using it after my face masks to give my skin that hydration boost. Although the packaging it super sleek looking, the only downside is I can't really tell when the product will be running out. I will definitely be repurchasing. 

Pur Organica Eye Cream (reviewed here)
I always end my skincare routines with an eye cream. This cream has done a great job of keeping my puffy eyes at bay as well as reducing my dark circles. A full review is on the direct link mentioned above.

THINGS TO REMEMBER
- drink lots of water (at least 8-10 glasses throughout the day)
- do not sleep with makeup on (however tired you may be)
A good skincare routine needs to be consistent in order to achieve gorgeous looking skin. What are your skincare must haves?
